    It'S Annoying Especially When I Need A Simple Answer

    I have a gym partner and I hate how when I ask him if he's going to the gym or not he takes forever or doesn't text me back. Like seriously I need a simple yes or no I'm not expecting a paragraph from you. Also I can't help but think something bad happen to them when I don't...

    I hate that Facebook and iMessage tell when your message has been seen or delivered, because it makes my feelings for you seem so obsessive. You must know by now that it's hard for me even to trust someone anymore, let alone like them or love them. And you know I do. So why play...

    I do not text ppl very much not to bother them

    but When I do and they don't text back it kills me I have a friend which we usually talk in whatsapp, whenever she's alone sends msg and I reply back as soon I could but when I send msg she replies so late

    You Did't Text Back..

    I opened my eyes and the first thing i thought of was you, as i reached for my phone and hoped there would be a message. Nothing appeared on the screen apart from the display picture and my apps and my heart sank. I sat for a while debating what to send you, i just wanted to hear...

    Waiting...waiting...waiting

    I hate when people don't text back when it's most obviously a text that needs a response. You sit there waiting and waiting and waiting for a response and it never comes. Quite frustrating really.

    Friends Frustrations

    do friends really need to text each other from moment to moment just to keep the friendship alive? For me no, as long as the real ones are still alive and will stay friendship still survive.

    Feel Awkward

    You send someone a text expecting a reply but it just never comes it's not to bad if it is just a friend text but if it's important it just irritates me because I'm left wondering what to do about it. Should I send another text in case they never received the first one. But what...

    What Would You Want Someone To Do?

    Okay, might be an old saying, like super old... like ancient. BUT it totally applies here. What would you want someone to do if you were in that case? Answer your text right? Like respond? Like saying something? LIKE NOT LEAVE YOU FREAKING HANGING FOR HOURS IF NOT DAYS??? *sigh...

    There Are Exceptions ...

    Recently a close friend of mine asked me why I do not respond to his text messages. I had not respond to just one text message as I had read the message after the event had taken place. I did point it out to him that it was just one case and not all. I even asked him when it had...

    If they're busy, I don't mind. If they suddenly had something to do and totally forgot, I don't mind. But if we're in the middle of a conversation or I text them with nothing back for no reason..I ask myself why I even have your number. I don't expect people to talk all the time...

    Randomly

    I'll text back and start a little bit of a conversation then get side tracked by life, today it was going to grab lunch and I won't text and drive, I'd rather just call and have an actual conversation generally, if its that important just call me.

    It's even worse when you have an iPhone,

    you can see if they actually read your message. If that little "R" sits there for more than 10 minutes, that speaks volumes.

    What's The Point????

    Why text someone if they aren't going to text back??? But the thing is, I do the same thing sometimes. If I just don't feel like talking...or talking to THAT person..then I won't text back...not right away anyhow. I know it's wrong & I have been trying to be better..to at least...

    Definitely.....

    Now, before I get shouted down, I KNOW people are busy and don't often check their phones that often so I never expect an instant reply. I also don't get too worked up if someone doesn't respond one time because these things can be easily forgotten. But what DOES get to me is...
